Mounting & Balancing: AmericanMuscle offers professional mounting and balancing on all wheels and tires when purchased together on the same order. This will allow you to swap out your old wheels for your new set when they arrive.
What is TPMS? The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS for short) is a factory installed safety feature on all 2007 and newer Ford Mustangs that alerts you when your tire pressure drops to an unsafe limit.
How do I keep my TPMS feature? Aftermarket wheels do not come with TPMS sensors. However, if you select 'Add TPMS Sensor Kit' and your specific year range from the options listed above, we'll install the TPMS Sensors in your new wheels!

I love these wheels but,
These wheels look great on the car I like everything about them except that the factory Center Caps do not fit. And I might consider that partially my fault I did not investigate it actually might say that in the description. But otherwise these wheels are great.Helpful (0)

I wanted to do a certain look on my 09 bullitt, where I have 18x8 bullitt wheels in the front and 18x10 in the rear. I do not like the larger lip on the front wheels so I purchased two of these and two 18x10 and they are completely different colors! No even close.. they are in the same section and labeled as the same color.. just to open box and them be two different colors. I already purchased tires, for 18x8 so they will not look right on an 18x9 rim.. extremely disappointed because I want to keep the bullitt style rims on my bullitt but I can’t get 18x8 in front and 18x10 in the rear!Helpful (0)

Not very good replicas
The casting and machining look OK, but the anthracite finish is nowhere near the quality of the OEM Ford wheels. The color is much lighter than OEM, closer to silver. There are large flaws in the paint and they don't have the 'as cast' look of the OEMs. There's also no ridge down the center of the spokes. Like most sub-$300 wheels, these are manufactured entirely in China and are priced accordingly.Helpful (7)

Worth the Investment
Bought a complete set including sensors and they look great. Have about 10 miles on them, so a little early to tell about the durability of the wheels.Helpful (9)

Bullitt rims look great on My Mustang GT.
Since the rims have been on the car for a wk and 4 days I have had many positive comments. One rim was damaged in shipping and A.M. got me a new one in a wk exactly and it was put on this past Saturday. Love the rims and new tires. I also got hood struts that I will put on today, great price too. I bought the car new March 16, 2006 and will keep until my time is up and then it goes to one of my younger brothers. Love stop light to stop light and drifting it. It's a White GT Premium Convertible with a Tan Top and Tan Interior, I Love it. Always wanted a Mustang since H.S. The Mustang came out 1964-1/2, I graduated 1965 and now 69, 70 next April. I've had 2 top end Cougars in the 80's, loved them both.Helpful (12)

18x8 Anthracite Bullitt Wheel
These wheels really look great! The finish is perfect. Great quality for the price. They do look better in person than in the catalog. Since I travel quite a bit, I went with all 8" so I can rotate the tires when I need to. Shipping was fast. Doug K - Milw. Wi.Helpful (10)

DO NOT MIX 8" WITH 9" OR 10"
The wheel are very nice BUT they are completely different from the 9" and 10" deep dish wheels. I am talking about the shape of the spokes and the color. I questioned this before my purchase and was told they were the same. Live and learn from my mistake. DO NOT MIXHelpful (12)
P 235/50 ZR 18s on these wheels? Will P 235/50 ZR 18s work on these wheels or do I need a different depth?
Sure they will. The 235/50-18 tires is actually what we recommend using on these 18x8 wheels because they have the best fit!
So I have lowered my 2014 V6 base by eibach sportline lowering spring, and I just wonder will this fit on my car, front and rear. the front has been lowered by 1.1'', rear 1.7'', and OEM one is 215/65/17 wheels.
They will fit your vehicle with those springs, however a larger tire would be required. We recommend a 255/45R18.
I currently have 235/50 tires on 18.5" factory rims. Can I use these 8" rims with my tires? How close is the color of these rims to the factory anthracite rims? Thanks.
This tire will work with that size wheel. As for the anthracite finish, this will most likely not match at all as anthracite is a chemical process and can never be made 100% to match a different batch.
Will they fit a 2015 base v6 mustang
Unfortunately these wheels will only fit the 05-14 Mustang Standard GT and V6 models.
Question: Will the factory OEM center cap fit on these wheels?
Unfortunately the factory center caps will not fit as they are a different size. We recommend AM center caps as they are designed specifically for the wheels we offer.
The Bullitt Anthracite Wheel and Pirelli Tire Kit with 18x8's will come with the Anthracite American Muscle Center Cap. Below we have the link to review the center cap. https://www.americanmuscle.com/anthracite-am-center-cap-9417.html
The Bullitt Anthracite Wheels are treated with a clear coat finish to protect the paint and machined lip. The clear coat used is resistant to brake dust.
Yes, these Bullitt Anthracite Wheels will allow you to use the factory lug nuts.
Some of the Bullitt Mustangs did come with an anthracite wheel. If you already have Bullitt wheels on your car, we cannot promise that the Bullitt Anthracite Wheel - 18x8 (05-14 GT, V6) will precisely match in color. This is because the wheels on the car could have some fade to them and since these are replica wheels, they could be slightly off.
The Bullitt Anthracite Wheel & NITTO Tire Kit - 18x8 (05-14 GT, V6) will not clear big brakes or the brembo brake packages.
Well most likely these will sit in between flush or tucked in, but they definately wont stick out, especially if you put a nice flush sitting tire on it. The only thing you'll have to watch out for is backspacing, but that shouldn't be an issue.
Simple installation for anyone.
